Answer to Question #54697 in Electrical Engineering for Kim
Two linearly polarised electromagnetic waves propagate in unison in free space, and their magnetic field vectors are given by
H1 = 3 e^(jy) xˆ mA/m and H2 = j 6 e^(jy) zˆ mA/m respectively, and y is in metres. Determine:
(a) The instantaneous electric field intensity vector of the resultant wave.
(b) The type (linear, circular, elliptical) and handedness (right- or left- handed) of the
polarisation of the wave.
